Decorating on a Budget!

30 Mar

So when I first moved into my apartment, I really wanted to decorate my bedroom perfectly for my personality! However, my funds were limited so I had to find ways to spruce up the dull, white room, while staying within my budget! So here are some simple, cheap ideas that I used to turn my bedroom from blah to beautiful!!

1. A canvas headboard. Well, actually it was INTENDED to be a headboard for my bed, but I ended up placing it a little higher so now it’s more just wall decor! This is was my Mom’s idea and its so incredibly versatile and great for if you like to change up your room often!

How to: Buy square, wooden canvas frames (can be purchased at Michael’s, Ikea, or anywhere like that) and then gett fabric to cover each square. Cut them to so they will stretch over the canvas and then stapled to fabric to the back. Ta-daa! Easy as pie!

2. Curtain doors. Basically, the only reason I did this was because every time I would slide open the original wooden doors, they would fall down!! HAZARD! Instead, I took those death doors down and hung up some heavy curtains in their place! I LOVE ’em!

How to: Simply buy some nice curtains to go with the rest of your decor, get a curtain rod and either some curtain tie-backs or hooks. There you have it!

3. Pretty fake flowers. These are actually from the dollar store! Again, they are easy to change out if I decide to ever change up my color scheme and they add a sense of elegance to the rest of my room!

How to: Buy a vase, some flowers and if you want, some rocks (like above!) Again, this whole thing is from the dollar store and cost me $5!!

4. A necklace rack! I love this thing a lot! It makes my room look significantly more fashionable, I guess you could say! Its absolutely perfect if you have long necklaces that you want to display!

How to: Buy any type of hook device. It can be single hooks or a rack like the one pictured. This one is from Ikea and was $3 I believe.

Spring Break HAUL

Hey loves! I went shopping over break with some birthday money and picked up a few things for spring/summer. You can check it all out here! 🙂

5 Nail Colors for Spring!

24 Mar

How much do you LOVE spring? I’m not sure if it’s the warm weather, blooming flowers, growing grass, vibrant colors or the fact that it means that Summer is right around the corner, but I just love me some spring-time! 🙂

Above are my top 5 nail polishes for this spring. I love the color variations and think it’s ten times more fun to wear bright, stand-out colors rather than just pinks and reds all the time.

Colors from left to right:
Sage – Forever 21 – a great light green that isn’t too bold, but is just enough color!
Dusty Blue – Forever 21 – A great color to transition from winter into summer!
Lucky Luck Lavender – OPI (Ulta) – Super pretty. Has a slight pink hint to it.
Light Pink – Forever 21 – I swear it’s not orange! Its soft, feminine and has a pearly sheen!
Pale Banana – Forever 21 – My favorite! It’s not overly bright, but does the trick if you want a great yellow.

Spring Is Upon Us!

20 Mar

Here’s a look at some of the spring outfits I put together!!

(Click on the picture to see it bigger!)

Above: These outfits all use this floral skirt that I recently bought from Forever 21. I used the white blouse to create a girly and classy style, the jacket for a more casual style, and the plain tank and gold jewelry for a simple, cool summer look!

Above: These first 2 looks are based around this floral tank that I purchased from Walmart. The first look used the studded belt, mini skirt (from Forever 21) and black boots (Wet Seal) to create an edgier style. The second look is perfect for a cool spring day and keeps it very casual. The third look is again is more edgy, with almost a touch of hipster. Both the striped tank and green shorts are from Target.

Above: The first two looks are based around these white Converse jeans from Target. The first look uses the jean jacket, simple tee, and striped scarf to create a nautical look. The second is more of a hipster meets hippe look, and the third outfit is just fun and girly!

 

Let me know if you want to see more posts like this! I love to plan ahead for the seasons so I can refer back to these if I am having trouble planning an outfit! Try it out for yourself!! 🙂
